SD-WAN Solutions to the Rescue of IT Leaders

While the SD-WAN solution might sound complex in theory with its intelligent, end-to-end encrypted network and AI capabilities, it is launched with zero-touch provisioning and is the answer to most security problems

Innovation is the hallmark of customer experience, and constant game-changing business strategies are taking place in the world of technology. It is starting to reflect the excessive number of solutions that are available in the marketplace today. However, experts consider certain technological innovations to not be major security contributors, and their ability to create a revolutionary impact in the business industry is minimal.

One innovation that experts deem has massive potential is SD-WAN. It can enhance the business operations of enterprises that have a cloud-first tech strategy. It brings speed, agility, and security to organizations that in fact, need tools to help them grow.

Remote working and data sprawls are IT teams’ major problems. Yet, experts suggest that if both endpoints and the network are completely secure, remote working would not be a concern.

For an effective SD-WAN solution, enterprises have already begun to place security as the topmost priority. An added recommendation is to put network and security policies together. How do they do that?

Earlier, the IT team used to build a circuit into the corporate network. For the remote employees to gain access, a tunnel was built into the internet, and it would feed into the network through a firewall. As a result, data could be derived and used by the employees. Sounds simple enough.

Yet, in these scenarios, the network and security solutions are probably given by a minimum of two providers. While they might produce brilliant services independently, with the growing disparate operation, the challenge is increasing. For instance, if an application shows an error or a technical glitch, how does the IT team figure out the main root of the problem? In many cases, the easiest and inexpensive method of gaining more bandwidth is chosen. Experts believe it is only a temporary solution that will not get to the root of the problem by investigating the endpoint risks and threats caused by, say, bad traffic.

With an SD-WAN solution, every aspect can be secured with a downloadable SaaS license that will ensure both the endpoint and the corporate network protection. Experts believe the location of the device wouldn’t matter and only basic internet service, from any provider, will be required.

Additionally, SASE-based cloud services or a network firewall ends up being the single integrated solution for IT leaders delivering rapid cloud connectivity. They also allow visibility to every endpoint, which in turn gives network control to the IT leader.

Meanwhile, SD-WAN solutions can detect speed, traffic, and performance issues. They can fix them in real-time by auto-balancing the load for greater network efficiency. Such solutions will allow enterprises to break free from management-intensive VPNs.

While the SD-WAN solution might sound complex in theory with its intelligent, end-to-end encrypted network and AI capabilities, it is launched with zero-touch provisioning with no hardware installations. Ultimately, it is the ease of access that matters for IT leaders.
